Start just below the red madrone tree in the first side gully in the Moby Dick descent gully - same as approach to Dem Bones, but before that 100' or so). This route gets an "R" in the guidebook, but if you fall (in some places) you will likely die. There are some VERY long runouts.

Bring yer head... The cruxes are mostly psychological barriers.

I think I started to far up the Moby Dick gully, as I was only 30 feet or so from the start of Moby Dick. Agreed, it is very runout. I encountered runouts of 70' or more on multiple pitches, mostly in the harder areas of slabby 5.7 climbing(as the chickenheads disappear, difficult increases and pro decreases). Rumor has it that bolts are going to be added to this climb sometime between Nov.'03 and Feb.'04. Sould make it even more fun.
